We hit another egg record last week. Our previous record for hen eggs laid in one day was 16. The new record is 17 as of Tuesday. We have 32 chickens in total. 6 are cockerels. Of the hens, 5 are quite old and retired from egg laying though we may need them for brooding later in the spring. So we think we have 21 laying birds. Getting 80% to lay on the same day is quite a record.
